Hot 100: Chris Brown Becomes First R&B Act in History To Have 100 Hits

Published: Tuesday 12th May 2020 by Rashad

Chris Brown has nabbed his centennial hit!

In just a year after surpassing Godfather of Soul James Brown‘s record for most Hot 100 entries of any R&B act in history (click here to read more on that), Chris has carried the genre’s torch into new chart territory by securing his 100th placement on the tally.

Details inside:

The song that gives him the victory lap, ‘Not You Too,’ is found on Drake’s newest effort – the ‘Dark Lane Demo Tapes’ mixtape – and is the latest joint release of the duo (following 2019’s megahit, ‘No Guidance’).  ‘Not’ debuted at #25 on this week’s Hot 100.

Not only is Chris now the first R&B act in history to boast 100 hits, he is also the first Black singer and second male solo singer to accomplish the feat, following the 109 hits of King of Rock N’ Roll Elvis Presley.

Over the course of his career, the 31-year-old has landed two chart-toppers (‘Run It,’ ‘Kiss Kiss’) and 15 top 10 hits.  What’s more, thanks to the recently unveiled joint mixtape with Young Thug – released May 5 (click here to listen) – next week will likely see him extend his Hot 100 record.

    Chris consistently releases music. He keeps his fans fed, I’ll give him that but what I won’t do is applaud quantity over quality. He has no classic albums or songs. Just a bunch of noise, filler and features. He’s been around too long to not have challenged himself musically or artistically. Not to mention, he hasn’t topped the charts since 2007.

    • IKNOWTHETRUTH May 12, 2020

      TALK THAT TALK

    • Yeshua Is Coming May 12, 2020

      he has 3 #1 albums on that hot 100. THe list that y’all worship. What do you mean he hasn’t topped the charts since 2007? His last album went #1

      • G-bby May 12, 2020

        The Hot 100 is for SINGLES. This article is speaking on his SINGLES. He has not topped the Hot 100 since “Kiss Kiss” in 2007.

      • IKNOWTHETRUTH May 12, 2020

        LOL HIS LAST BIG HIT WAS CUZ OF DRAKE. HE CHARTS NUMBER ONE ALBUMS CUZ HE LOADS HIS ALBUMS FULL OF 473723636 FILLERS

    • SMH May 14, 2020

      Have you actually listened to Heartbreak on a Full Moon or Indigo? They’re legit masterpieces.

    BROWN N MINAJ……CHILE ENTRIES N HITS ARE NOT THE SAME 😂😂😂

    • King Z May 12, 2020

      hits and entries ARE the same. there are millions of songs in the world right now, only 100 of them make the chart.

      there are LEVELS of hits, yes. there are big hits, moderate hits, and minor hits but they are all HITS

      • IKNOWTHETRUTH May 12, 2020

        UMMMMM NO. SEE TOP 40 N UP WOULD BE A HIT. NOT STUFF BELOW THAT LIKE 96 😂😂😂😂😂😂. CHILE BYE HIS LAST HIT WAS A HIT CUZ OF DRAKE.

  5. IKNOWTHETRUTH May 12, 2020

    MARIAH HAS 19 #1 HITSSSSS. CALL ME WHEN SOMEONE DOES THE SAME. THEY ARE ALL HER SONGS BTW. SONGS SHE WROTE N LED N DID SOLO.

  6. Clarks0o0ñ May 12, 2020

    I use to follow Chris brown and his music but I couldn’t keep up any more.

    He has only 3 number one songs , and all 3 number 1’s have features but I dont see anybody attacking him.
    🤡🤡🤡

    • Jeans May 12, 2020

      This is no amazing news since it’s just based on chart entries.

    • Around the way filet May 12, 2020

      cb has 2 no 1 hits from 2 decades ago. tragic.

    • Yeshua Is Coming May 12, 2020

      Because breezy is consistent. all of his albums charted #1. I mean I guess you don’t HAVE to like every artist. But give credit where it is due. How many r&b artists have 3+ youtube videos that have over 100 millions views each? Loyal is almost at 1 billion.

      • IKNOWTHETRUTH May 12, 2020

        ALL HIS ALBUMS HAVENT GONE NUMBER ONE SO THATS A LIE

  7. eric May 12, 2020

    The majority of those hits will not stand the test of time, and neither will his legacy for that reason. His biggest idol made music that transcends generations.

    • IKNOWTHETRUTH May 12, 2020

      THEY SURE WONT. HIS BIGGEST N MEMORABLE HITS ARE FROM OVA A DECADE AGO.

  8. Bionic Diva May 12, 2020

  9. Around the way filet May 12, 2020

    dont nobody gaf. cb is overhyped because as his fans put his “he can paint, play basketball and dance (do backflips)” 100 entries dont mean s*** if 90% of them debuted in the lower regions and fell off a week or 2 later. same for nicki. the legends broke records by getting solo hits , not hella features and random album tracks to manipulate the charts. foh

    • Yeshua Is Coming May 12, 2020

      uhhhhhh he has how many albums? and how many of those albums had a bunch of songs? Exactly. How many of your faves performed in front of MJ FOR Mj? I’ll wait. How many of your faves performed for the President? right. bye

      • IKNOWTHETRUTH May 12, 2020

        GIRLLLLLLL. BEFORE MJ DIED PLENTY PERFORMED IN FRONT OF HIM N FOR HIM. FOR PRESIDENTS AS WELL. NOTHIN SPECIAL TRY THE OLYMPICS OR SUPERBOWL. U JUST ANSWERED THE QUESTION……8 ALBUMS N HALF OF THEM HAVE 6868766 SONGS TO CHEAT HIS WAY INTO PLATINUM SO GIRL GONE.

  10. Yeshua Is Coming May 12, 2020

    Y’all been hating on breezy since 09 yet he is still smashing records. Y’all going to give our brother credit or naw?

  11. LIZZO May 12, 2020

    HIS FANS ARE DELUSIONAL. THEY SAY CHRIS IS GREATER THAN MJ. THE DELUSION!! THE MOST IMPACT CHRIS HAS MADE ON THE CULTURE WAS BEATING RIHANNA TO A PULP. SINCE THEN HE’S RELEASED ONE THOUSAND FORGETABBLE FEATURES AND POPCORN SINGLES. HE HASNT HAD A #1 HIT OR PLATINUM *SELLING* ALBUM (FK THE STREAMING B*******) SINCE THE 2000’S. THATS NOT IMPRESSIVE. MJ’S LOWEST SELLING ALBUM OUTSOLD CHRIS ENTIRE DISCOGRAPHY LMAO

  12. Nippian May 12, 2020

    I dig Chris’ music he gives you what you need. Guaranteed atleast 5-6 bops per album; mind you his albums have been 30-40 songs lately, but you get the picture.

    He should be bigger than he is, but we know his troubles slowed him up a lot. Chris has mental illness and he is self-medicating with the drugs. He used to be so handsome and now he looks so vacant in the eyes and underweight. He looked so good when he left jail that time he had gained weight and was taking his Seroquel. The Internet was cruel calling him fat and he got back on the drugs; smh.

    Whatever the case Chris has earned all of his success unlike people like Jason Derulo who has no talent and very little hits but white people just eat him up. Go figure.

  13. Dua Lipa New Rules May 12, 2020

    With all the flops Chris brown is getting amd he still releasing singles and albums after each other. Wow, he must be good in sucking dickkk

  14. Re May 12, 2020

  15. Always May 12, 2020

  16. Sis May 12, 2020

    He would be so much bigger of a star if he had kept his hands to himself. Very Talented.

  17. Boy_bye May 12, 2020
